Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who is accused of child molestation, wants to tell his side of the story in a sitdown interview with Oprah Winfrey, reports the Patriot News of Harrisburg, Pa.
Other names that have been mentioned in connection with the potential interview, which would be sure to generate viewer interest, include Barbara Walters and Brian Williams, the story reports.
Sandusky’s attorney tells the newspaper that Sandusky and his wife, Dottie, are considering appearing together for a high-profile interview in 2012. The pair are interested in either "Rock Center" on NBC, CBS’s "60 Minutes," speaking with ABC’s Barbara Walters or sitting down with Oprah, he said, according to the piece.
Reaching out to a well-known television host comes after some have questioned Dottie Sandusky’s knowledge of her husband’s alleged behavior, the story notes. Dottie, who has been married to Jerry Sandusky for 45 years, has insisted that her husband is innocent of all charges.
